A - Pours a golden-yellow to orange hue with a tiny, white head.

S - Apricots, high alpha acid hops, peach, and a funky herb smell.

T - Very pungent high alpha acid hops, apricots, lots of lemon, and belgian yeast flavors.

M - Moderately thin.

O - This beer lives up to its name. It is definitely a bit wild and totally stands out. Maybe a little too wild. But by all means enjoyable.

Hazed golden with yeaste particulates in suspension. Nice doughy belgian yeastiness on the aroma mixed with citric hops. Flavor is bright and citric, a little farmhouse sour/funk, and doughy belgian yeastiness. Lemon comes through pretty big in the citrus department. Quite drinkable...especially for 9.4. Wouldn't have guessed. Good brew. Lagunitas is just a solid, solid brewery.

Overall: Keeping it short here: try this beer. Then enjoy more of this beer. A little sumpin' of this will go a long way.

Appearance: Golden amber in color. Good head with a slight lace. Lot of carbonation.

Smell: Toast; wheat; raspberry; sour fruit.

Taste: Hops introduce themselves onto the front of the palate, then cleans up with a fruit-tart finish.

Mouthfeel: Average body with a dry finish.

Sampled from a pint glass.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 12 oz.bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: Nice thick head that quickly fades & golden brown color. Nice lacing left behind.

Smell: Hops & Hops! Very floral, with a hint of fruit & citrus. Makes you want whats causing the aroma.

Taste: Hops up front with the malt coming through, very balanced. High ABV was not overly prominent.

Mouthfeel: Medium body & carbonation, surprising for the alcohol content

Overall: Fantastic. A very drinkable beer even with the high ABV. - A definite beer to revisit.
